This thread is dedicated to sharing pictures of your sewing room or space. Please be very brief when describing your space. Short, two to three word captions should suffice. Also, if you would like to share commentary, do so in a private message to the writer. The idea of this thread is present a gallery of sewing spaces. Commentary, although always welcomed, will fill the thread with a great deal of text and will ultimately be deleted. Clickable links are okay.

EDITED 8/27/11 TO REVISE PROTOCOL:
Here is the new and improved Sewing Spaces Photo thread protocol:

It's clear that people want to comment on pictures, and I think that's a lovely idea in the short term. Long term, however, it's nice to have a thread that's wall-to-wall pictures without old conversations. So...

The moderator goes through the thread about twice monthly. I delete all picture-less or link-less comments that are more than a week old A MONTH OLD. I leave all other comments till next time, so that the intended reader will have a chance to read the comment and have a brief conversation. The next time I come through, I delete all the old comments again.

Post comments knowing that they will be deleted at a later date.

My sewing space is fairly large. The main portion is on the balcony overlooking my living room and dining room. It opens up into my studio, I work at home, and I have cutting table there and a bank of file cabinets that hold all my patterns and pattern sheets from BWOF.

My sewing machines are on the north wall.


Directly opposite against the knee wall is my ironing table and bookcases.

My cutting table is in the studio portion of my space. My dh built this and it is on industrial, locking casters.

This is the view into my studio, with the cutting table to the right, you can just see the corner of it.

Fabric storage closet. My dh added this closet. It was originally a half wall open to the staircase.

View from my studio. The fabric closet is where the ironing board is attached.


This is how my dh retrofitted a computer desk to give my sewing machine a flat bed. If I want to use the free arm, I remove the insert and move my machine to the right which gives me plenty of room for the free arm.

My sewing space is one of the two guest bedrooms. It still has to function as a bedroom, so I keep most of my fabric and supplies in big plastic tubs that can be slid into a closet or taken to the basement when guests are here.

My main work area:


My back-up machine, and where my niece sews when she is here. That is her mess on it!


Fabric and supplies are in large plastic containers:

I have both upstairs bedrooms for sewing areas, but both are small at 9' x 12', and the attached garage for my quilt studio.

Don't get too excited, folks -- THIS is my sewing space (a.k.a. the "north wing" of my study):



The desk is the one I had growing up; the chair was my grandparents' writing desk chair (100 years old, mahogany, beautifully made, very comfortable). The sewing machine is my Kenmore. (My old Pfaff sits in a corner of the dining room, downstairs.)

For obvious reasons I'm not showing you the downstairs storage room where I keep my overflowing plastic containers full of fabric and my six or seven boxes full of patterns.

Instead of copying all my photos of my sewing space, I will just post this link to them (truthfully, I was having a hard time figuring out how to get the images in the post)
